My love affair for Ben & Jerry’s started when I was 16 years old. I was staying at my Uncles house in Lake George, NY and had never seen a Ben & Jerry’s shop before. On my way home from the arcade one day, I walked past a Scoop Shop. I decided to stop in and buy a pint. I purchased a Coconut Almond Fudge Chip pint. I took it back to my Uncles house, sat on the swing set out back and had my first heavenly experience of this super premium ice cream. I was hooked! I went back one more time during my week long stay and I picked up a pint of New York Super Fudge Chunk. I went to the backyard and devoured that pint in no time at all. 20 years later, New York Super Fudge Chunk is still an available flavor (been around since 1985) and I decided to buy a pint of it today. It always has been and will be one of my favorite flavors ever!
New York Super Fudge Chunk is described as “Chocolate Ice Cream with White & Dark Fudge Chunks, Pecans, Walnuts & Fudge-Covered Almonds”. I took off the lid and dug in! This pint is packed with all sorts of goodies. The chocolate base is smooth, creamy, rich and delicious. I love Ben and Jerry’s chocolate ice cream. Certain flavors, it overpowers everything else, but in this pint, it works perfectly. No wonder why it’s been a long standing flavor choice! I soon encountered all of the mix ins. The white and dark fudge chips are the standard Ben & Jerry’s rectangular pieces. I prefer the white ones myself. They provide a different flavor in contrast to all the chocolaty items in the pint. It’s pretty rare that you find white chocolate anything in ice cream nowadays and it’s a welcome sight to see these little pieces. I got some bites of the different nuts, next. Even though the chocolate base was rich, you could still detect and pick out each nut flavor. The walnuts were nice and savory, the pecans were light and toasty and the fudge covered almonds were crunchy and satisfying. The mix ins were layered perfectly in this pint. Every bite, you would get something good! I made my way through that pint and was sad when the spoon hit the bottom.
If you are a fan of chocolate and nuts, this is the pint for you! It is one of my favorite Ben &Jerry’s pints and with good reason. It’s a chocolate lovers dream, it’s been around forever, and it’s the perfect balance of crunchy, chewy and chocolaty. If you were to introduce Ben & Jerry’s to somebody that has never had it, this pint would be a great introduction to the deliciousness of their premium ice cream. This will always be a repeat purchase!
